Rebel in the Hill.
Pencil sketch of a hero of mine: Darcus Howe. I became aware of him from his appearances on Channel 4. It wasn’t Michael Grade or Greg Dyke in charge at the time, but Jeremy Isaacs, who did a great job, putting the broadcast remit first at a time when it was desperately needed. Howe was a necessary and erudite foghorn at a time when British society was only just waking up to the fact that anything other than the caucasian middle-class status quo effectively didn’t exist in the media. Always more articulate than the panel, DH was politely forcible.
